The aspect of "the customer is always right" has crept into medicine with the use of the internet (dr google) to the point where lay people think they know everything that they need (if they did they wouldn't be at a hospital or MD) but in reality its the worst thing that people can do, people now think they know more then MD and experienced nurses cause they have a smartphone.

Typical practitioner arrogance.

"The researchers caution that most of medical errors aren’t due to inherently bad doctors, and that reporting these errors shouldn’t be addressed by punishment or legal action. Rather, they say, most errors represent systemic problems, including poorly coordinated care, fragmented insurance networks, the absence or underuse of safety nets, and other protocols, in addition to unwarranted variation in physician practice patterns that lack accountability."

It also doesn't help the industry does everything it can to jew Medicaid and Medicare for all it can. Maybe people would have more trust if they weren't worried their on-the-ass-end-of-his-30-hour-shift doctor was going to kill them, or let their health suffer so they can run a couple more CT scans because their insurance will cover it.
